Your Destination

Rye is a town unlike any other in England. A medieval townscape locked in time with a fascinating history, it offers a great escape for relaxation or romance. Four miles from the white beach of Camber Sands, the sea air is wonderful any time of year.

Originally surrounded by sea, this fortified hilltop town stands tall above the sprawling green pastures. Head to St Mary's church tower, which offers the best viewpoint to show the terracotta roofs of the many timbered houses. Alternatively, explore its cobbled streets by foot and discover secret passages, once the haunt of smugglers and highwaymen, and a regular film setting for period productions.

Your Hotel

Discover 600 years of history at Mermaid Inn, tuck into delicious food at the Linen Fold Panelled Restaurant, make your way through the portrait adorned hallway, go upstairs to the Elizabethan Bed Chamber, and Dr Syns Bed Chamber, where the secret passageway behind the bookcase is open, to reveal the Priest Hole.  Experience a drink in the Giant’s Fireplace Bar and imagine how the Hawkhurst Gang, local smugglers in the 1730s and 1740s, caroused in the bar. Can you see the secret passageway entrance?  This hotel is a destination in its own right.

Each Room is moulded by time, The Royal Rye Room derives its name from Elizabeth I's visit to Rye in 1573 when she declared the whole town royal for its role in defending England.  In 1913 Mrs Adlington ran the Mermaid as a club and many famous artists and literary personalities visited, including Henry James, Rupert Brooke, E.F Benson, Dame Ellen Terry and Lord Alfred Douglas (Oscar Wilde’s Bosey).
